Hello Fellow Felons,
Hungry. That’s how I feel. I’m not calmed by the humble yet important success we had in 2010. I’m ignited and burning the last fumes we gathered from the support we got on the road, online, or at home. Don’t you feel it? Everywhere I look people are gearing up to accomplish something they’ve never done and in doing so; becoming something they’ve never been. I’m almost violent in my excitement for this year. I want to scream down the paved rivers from inside The Great White Whale and kick down the doors of the people who want to “stay in tonight” or “get it done next week”. I want a community I can believe in.
After being awarded 3 best album of 2010’s (Awaiting The Flood, Americana Rock Mix, CT Scenic), and some recent love from The New Haven Register, we’re left to humbly accept before we aim to inspire more people. We don’t take the attention we’ve gotten lately lightly. So last week, we were in the studio with Jacob Eli Goldman (produced all theAeroplane, 1929 records and Jeff Taylor’s latest record) to record our 3rd album. We recorded 4 songs in 4 days and it should be mixed by the end of the month. We don’t have a title for the EP yet but we know the song’s names: “Can’t Be Your Friend”, “On My Way to Hell”, “Sinister Things”, “Love on The Loose”.
Songs For Cowards took one and a half years, Gold Liquid Mischief took 7 months, this one is on course to taking up just 1 month. We are becoming more efficient!
There is not much to say about how the new album sounds except that it doesn’t have any acoustic guitar in it. That’s right, we’ve abandoned folk arrangements, but not the folk spirit.
I hope those of you who responded to our holiday email and recieved a gift from us in the mail enjoyed your present. Stay in touch for more gifts to come.
This month we have two videos to send you and a list of the 10 best songs that influenced Sidewalk Dave in 2010.
1. Unreleased song: “Cayenne”. It won’t make this album but it will surely make the next release. Watch it here.
2. The best of 2010 list of songs that was published by The New Haven Register. I’m sure you don’t want to just read the list, so The New Haven Register decided to put music videos and samples of all the songs that were listed! Go here to read it, watch it, hear it.
3. Personal google map of our show schedule. This way if we’re in your neck of the woods all you have to do is click on the show tab in your area to get all the details! Check it out here.
